Back In Black: Panthers' All-Black Uniform Wins Contest For Best In NFL History
Published July 25, 2013
HOME IMPROVEMENT: In Charlotte, Erik Spanberg reports the Panthers have "taken on a combined" $1.5M in improvement projects for Bank of America Stadium, including "widening and improving the entrances, and replacing the playing field at the stadium and one of the practice fields." More upgrades to the stadium's Wi-Fi system also "have been completed, and access to the NFL Red Zone channel has been added for Panthers app users." Panthers President Danny Morrison said that the game presentation "will feature more music at the stadium -- what he describes as a less-scripted production of features and themes on the video boards and more interaction with fans to increase enthusiasm." Meanwhile, the Panthers also have "extended their radio contract" with Charlotte-based WBT-AM in an agreement that "runs three more years" (CHARLOTTE BUSINESS JOURNAL, 7/19 issue).
